Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: I’m all in favor of putting Luverne on the map, but I don’t support the plans to construct a 75-foot-tall mechanical nutcracker in town for tourism. We have a wonderful town with beautiful history and this nutcracker doesn't represent Luverne in the slightest. The desire for this...
A new state tax credit will impact every owner of agricultural land, if the bond referendum proposal of Luverne Public School District is passed on Tuesday. The School Building Bond Agricultural Credit, also known as the Ag2School Credit, was passed by the Minnesota Legislature this spring and...
To the Editor: The economist Joseph Schumpeter said there is creative destruction in the economy that occurs in 50-year cycles, in which new industries are created but others destroyed.

Supt. Oftedahl said, “The idea of making a difference is essential to...
To the Editor: The Tri-State Band Festival Committee would like to salute the Luverne community for the overwhelming support and participation in the 67h Annual Tri-State Band Festival. This event would not happen without the involvement, commitment and energy of businesses, organizations and...
To the Editor: We traveled from our home in Florida to visit my brother Ardell  and his wife Jayona and family over Labor Day weekend. We had a wonderful time but for one thing.
